Little Yellow-Shouldered Bat

Sturnira lilium


This specimen was caught in an edge of a river, on an island in the middle of the river that across my city, a region of transiiton between the Cerrado and Atlantic Forest.


Some friends of mine, and I, are doing some researches of bats, then we decide teach a course about Neotropical Chiropteran in my city. The "Sturnira lilium" have a frugivorous diet.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

Nice spotting! It must be nice doing this type of research. I love bats and feel sorry for their undeserved bad rep. People needs to learn how important they are for entire ecosystems! :-)
